What I’ve been Doing?
I have been working voluntarily for the community centre for three months at the same time volunteered at Mamelodi FM (Mams Radio) since beginning of this year. Not forgetting to mention that God has been with me through out the journey no matter how difficult it was. I have worked before as a young journalist, PA, Administrator and all the doors were at some point closed. There’s a saying that when one door closes the other opens. I prayed to him and had faith that something will come up. It didn’t matter to me whether is big or small opportunity.
Call For the interview
I’m forever on social media. One day when I was going through my whatsapp text messages I got an exciting text to say that I might have an interview and should expect a call anytime soon. I was lying in bed and flew of my bed and the next minute I was on the floor, believe me I had no idea how I got there. Waited for a call….
One morning when I got to work I phoned the organization asking if the interview is still on. I was asked to be patience and will get a call and I did. I never stopped reading about who they are and what they do. That was important because some of the interview questions were based on if I know what they are and what they do.
Talking about the interview
I left Mamelodi in the morning after preparing for the interview a night before. Took a Gautrain to Johannesburg, Sandton. I was 3 hours early and I just hang about where I could get lunch. I was surprised that I was hungry, I couldn’t eat breaky! I told them that I was in Sandton and they told me to come through. Guess who was there?
JJ Onkgopotse Tabane was one of my interviewers …have a read about this guy, he’s so interesting.. As powerful as he is on Radio, trust me he’s even more in real life. Educated and don’t want to talk about his political views LOL, listen to him yourself on power FM from 9pm to 12am. Its nothing but power!.
When I read about him, he’s was just as many in one. He’s a political activist, CEO at Oresego Holdings, Author of Let’s talk Frankly and Anchor on Power FM, just to name few…. He has a PhD in Media and many more other qualifications, heard that he’s still studying. I’m so inspired. I’m telling you that next year I’ll be studying something…
Until now that I found out that I will be in the same company as powerful, famous and motivational people. I’m so blessed and can’t wait to start tomorrow and work my *** of !. Let’s say The New Beginning…
